Welcome, to what is my first Sunday Stamps posting.
When I was about 3 years old, I remember being given a penny UK stamp in a matchbox by my Grandfather. After then, every time the postman visited with a stamped letter I was given the stamp which I added to the matchbox. I still have those original stamps, mixed in, to what became a childhood collection that I actually still have. Every now and again I pull them out and contemplate selling them, but something stops me. Perhaps it is the link to my childhood and happy memories of my Grandfather.
So, I was delighted to find this weekly meme, whereby, I might share a stamp or two before I seriously think about parting with my childhood collection for someone else to enjoy.
By way of a slightly different slant on stamps for this week, I shall share the following. Last month we holidayed on the beautiful Island of the Channel Islands known as Jersey. I have over the last few weeks shared our experiences HERE. One of those posts was about the Occupation Tapestry, created in commemoration of Liberating the Channel Islands from German Occupation during the period of 1940-1945. The picture below, is one of twelve panels of the Tapestry and shows the Jersey Stamps.
